Veterans Day in Washington

HF Kansas City-4988

That’s me on the left holding a Thank You card from the young man beside me. I was performing my duties as an Honor Flight guardian for a Kansas City Honor Flight. We were at the Korean War Memorial when this young man approached me. His dad told me he had been looking for a Coastie all day. The boy had made a thank you card for one member of each service for Veterans Day. He had given out each of his cards except for the Coast Guard one. We didn’t have any Coasties on this Honor Flight so I accepted the card. One look at his face and you can see he was truly happy to have performed his duty like so many others.
